I'm entering my holiday off mode for a couple of days as I'll be neck deep in family, Christmas movies, cough drops and tissues. May Santa bring you all that you want and need this year (while masked and from a safe distance). Wishing you all a safe and healthy and happy Christmas!
I was given this year's nutcracker last night! Hubby had started giving them to me early so I could enjoy them the whole season. Some years I get them earlier than others because he cannot stand to hang on to it after he gets it. This showed up on the porch yesterday afternoon and it… Continue reading Home For The Holidays
Up until recently, I've been mostly happy with the school situation with both BG doing her junior year remotely and MC being nearly all remote for his freshman year of college, but still being required to be in his dorm. Ideally, I'd still prefer MC do be able to do his part from home, but… Continue reading School Heading Into Fall And Winter
Hope that bunny was wearing his mask while he snuck in an extra roll or two of toilet paper into your baskets!
May that jolly old elf bring you happiness, joy and all the good things in life!
This weekend kicked off Christmas Program week for BG at dance, starting with ballet. It is crowded and sometimes not easy to see because of that, but I love these programs. They are smaller and more intimate than the huge end of year recital. This year was even more interesting as BG had her boyfriend… Continue reading Christmas Program Week
I have been getting at least one nutcracker a year since I was 16. When Hubby and I got together, he took over the tradition. A few years back, he started giving them to me on the day we decorate instead of on Christmas so that I'd be able to have it out for the… Continue reading This Year’s Nutcracker
Today is decorating day. Normally that means both inside and out, but we got the out done early because they were predicting crappy weather. It is kinda funny how insane my kids are about this tradition. They have been talking about it for weeks and bounced off the walls when they got up this morning.… Continue reading Frosty Leaf
Today I will sit down with my family and enjoy a meal I spent hours working on. It isn't something I begrudge because it is one of the ways I get to show how much I care about them. We are all healthy. We are all safe. We are all happy and loved. For that,… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving
It has been one hell of a week and it doesn't look to be stopping soon. I've gotten about two thirds of the way through my revisions, which has been both harder and easier to do depending on which sections I was working. Those revisions have changed the tone of the book in a way… Continue reading Revisions, Illness, Worry And The Start Of The Holidays
Today is traditionally a crazy busy day for me. It is the day that all the holiday decorations come down and get put away. It is also a day of massive cleaning since all the decorations leave my house covered in needles from my trees and garland as well as what always seems to be… Continue reading Staying Warm
Wishing everyone a beautiful day!
Santa came early last night and left us our first inch of snow for the season. With the cold temps, we should still have it on the ground for tomorrow. It isn't much, but it is there and it is white and beautiful. Merry Christmas Eve!
May today remind you that, even in the darkest times, the light always returns. Now, bring on the snow!
This will probably be the first year ever that I won't be carving a pumpkin for Halloween. We have always gone all out for Halloween with a full on haunted garage and everything and the pumpkins have always been a huge part of that. It is something I adore doing and usually put a crap… Continue reading Bring On The Scary
